Healthy people live in healthy communities. And, Independence Blue Cross is building and supporting programs and initiatives that improve the health and well-being of the communities we serve.
We’re reshaping care and changing lives by creating new models of coordinated care, driving the health care conversation, and promoting community programs focused on health and wellness. We’re forging a bold new path to better health … together.
At Independence, we know the public looks to us for timely, well-organized, useful information about COVID-19. This site offers a central location for all the COVID-19 information members need to know in an easy to navigate format. Here you can learn how to identify symptoms, where to get tested, and find out more about getting care, virtual visits, and emotional health resources.
Know Your Mind
Know Your Mind is a mental health public awareness campaign designed to educate the community about symptoms of depression and anxiety, and how to help themselves and others during these emotionally challenging times. Know Your Mind offers advice from a panel of local mental health experts and uses a range of communications platforms and media partnerships to reach communities across the five-county area.
Celebrate Caring is Independence’s way of saying “thank you” to the nurses who go above and beyond to deliver exceptional care and compassion. With help from our communities and media partners, the campaign highlights inspiring stories of nurses across various settings.
Facilitated Health Networks
We are creating new models of care that put better health within your reach. That means looking at everything we do from your point of view: Your health, your well-being, your priorities. Our Facilitated Health Networks model promotes collaboration among health insurers, doctors, and hospitals, and aims to improve quality and help lower costs of care for everyone.
By promoting well-being initiatives throughout the Philadelphia region, Fearless Fit helps motivate our members and community to pursue healthy, active lifestyles. Fearless Fit events and sponsorships put the focus on physical activity at any age or fitness level.
Getting Health Care Right
At Independence Blue Cross, we believe that health care is a right, not a privilege. Everyone should have access to high-quality, affordable care. We know our current health system is not perfect, but we can build on what works and fix what is broken to achieve universal coverage. Americans are counting on us — insurers, providers, and government — to work together to get health care right.
Health of America
Health of America is a source of insights, information, and powerful stories highlighting how Blue Cross Blue Shield companies are leading the way to better health care — and better health - for America. Through a series of analytical reports, Health of America shares insights into health care trends,affordability, and access for all Americans.
One in five Americans lives with a mental health condition. In times of crisis, people living with mental illness and those who care for them face additional challenges. That’s why, in May 2020, we partnered with the City of Philadelphia to create mindPHLtogether.com, urging people to be “#mindPHL together” and highlighting free, public mental health resources.
The opioid epidemic is the worst drug crisis in our nation's history. Independence is committed to turning the tide on opioid addiction and overdose.
